In Progress: With this update comes a change to the original plans. Rummaging through the spares box I found some parts from an old Dragon kit for the Abrams. This kit will still be built as a vehicle that participated in OIF but using Echelon Fine Details T35004 decal sheet instead of T35013.
As can be seen I have decided to use the Barrel Depot barrel instead of the kits part. Other additions also include Lionroar's .50cal machine gun barrel. A comparison between it and the kits part can be seen below.
More updates to follow.
